Work in Schools

The Director of Careers at a South East London School said "Many thanks for delivering the careers focus workshops to our year 10s.  Feedback from students has been very positive and we are confident that  the students' aspirations have been raised."

Stirling Careers Consultancy is an independent and impartial careers consultancy working in schools to deliver careers education supported by guidance interviews in line with Section 29 of the Education Act 2011 which places a duty on schools to secure access to independent and impartial careers guidance for their pupils in school from years 9 to 11 from September 2012 onwards.

A previous year 12 pupil, now in year 13 said "Having a careers interview in year 11 enabled me to discuss my options.  I am now happy with my 'A' Level choices."

A previous year 11 pupil said "Thinking about other colleges and putting a revision timetable together really helped me." 

A current year 10 pupil said "I am now able to broaden my ideas for a future career and possibly find one I might not of thought of before."

With the changes in government legislation for year 11 pupils and the introduction of Raising the Participation Age from Summer 2013, pupils who left year 11 in summer 2014 or later have to continue in education or training until at least their 18th birthday. Stirling Careers Consultancy  has been working with a number of schools to help them outline the options available for the future whether it is:

  • 6th Form
  • Further Education College or Training provider
  • Apprenticeship or Traineeship
  • Volunteering or working part-time and studying (20 hours of accredited learning)
  • University Technical Colleges (UTCs) and studio schools are new options for 14 to 19 year olds
  • Self-employment (setting up own business)

 

Pupils have been able to consider all their options by having interviews with Stirling Careers Consultancy. An Ofsted inspection report entitled "Going in the right direction" said "It is vitally important that young people have access to good and realistic information and guidance about the full range of career pathways available to them". Later on in the report it says "the most important requirement is that all students have access to independent and impartial advice."     

‚ÄčAs we live and work in a global economy which is slowly recovering from a deep recession the job market is becoming increasingly competitive at all levels, in particular for school leavers and graduates.  This is why expert career guidance and student careers advice is absolutely essential to give students the options open to them and give them the tools and techniques to make decisions and move forward.  There are huge changes taking place in the educational landscape particularly in relation to the costs of higher education and giving students advice is essential.

 

Those pupils who are able to have a guidance interview can talk through their options, discuss their career aspirations and thus move forward.
